- To move forward or backward in the song is playing, drag the diamond in the progress bar forward or backward. To switch between total, elapsed and remaining, click the time display on the top of the iTunes window (you may need to double click a song to see the time display). Click the song title to switch between artist, title and album name.

- You can share your musical tastes with friends by posting your best playlists on the iTunes Store. The playlists offer fragments of thirty seconds of any of the songs on your list, if available on the iTunes Store. If any song from your playlist is not available in the music store will not appear in the shared list. To share a playlist, choose the one you want to share. Click the arrow to the right of Publish the playlist in the sources column. If you do not see it, make sure you have ticked "Show links to iTunes Store" in iTunes > Preferences (Windows, Edit> Preferences).
- A simple way to keep up with the music you like by style or artist is to create Smart Playlists. they are continually looking for clues in your music library that meet the criteria you enter. iTunes offers a variety of conditions to set as criteria for smart playlists, including artist, album, year, title, last played, listing date, genre, composer, score, play counter and others.
- The iTunes Shuffle DJ does to relax and enjoy the party. Open iTunes> Preferences (Windows, Edit> Preferences), click Show Party Shuffle and OK. Select shuffle in the Source column and iTunes creates a random playlist from your music library. If you prefer, at the bottom of the list in Shuffle can change the music source and choose a playlist. Other options let you choose Shuffle few of the songs played and want to keep the list as well as the number who will be playing soon. Another handy option allows you to tell Shuffle to play more often highest rated songs.
